Chemistry, medicine and fire safety: inventors talk about their new developments

Every year, on the last Saturday of June, the country celebrates the Day of the Inventor and Innovator. This holiday is really special, because Belarus is famous for its intellectual capital. On the account of the BSU Scientific Research Institute of Physical and Chemical Problems alone there are 45 licensing agreements, which brought in income of about $400,000. Polatsk State University received over one million euros for the development of a device for express analysis of petroleum products. The R correspondent learned what Belarusian inventors are working on now and how they see the development of science in the future.

COMPETENTLY

Alexander Shumilin, Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology:

— Our committee actively promotes the development of inventions and innovations in the country, regulates the protection of intellectual property rights (IP). The direct protection of rights to IP objects and the fulfillment of the functions of the patent body defined by law provided by the National Center for Intellectual Property. The center not only helps the inventor to patent the development and obtain legal protection, but also promotes the effective management of IP rights so that the owner of the development can receive the greatest possible income from its use.

In 2019, more than 1000 objects were registered in the state registers of industrial property rights - these are inventions, utility models, industrial designs, plant varieties, topologies of integrated circuits.

In addition, since 2016 there has been an increase in exports of services for the use of intellectual property. In 2015 its volume amounted to 23.2 million dollars, when in 2019 - 100.4 million. At the same time, the growth in imports in the sphere of services for the use of intellectual property in 2019 amounted to only 2.2 percent compared to the previous period.

On this occasion, on behalf of the SCST and on my own behalf, I congratulate the inventors and innovators! Belarusian products in mechanical engineering, medicine, biotechnology, IT industry and other fields has earned universal approval, because of your hard work and great ideas!
